On Monday’s debate, Hillary tried to use some of Trump’s past public spats to tarnish his image. She brought up Miss Universe Alivia Machado, claiming that Trump “fat shamed” her in the past when she gained weight during the competition.
After the debate, Machado tweeted her thanks to Clinton, writing in Spanish: “Thanks Mrs. Hillary Clinton. Your respect for women and our differences makes you great. I’m with you.”
It’s helped fuel the media’s attempts to frame Trump as a misogynist, as they’ve already done this entire campaign season. Machado has made a handful of media appearances since the debate. In one, she claimed to have developed an eating disorder as a result of Trump… even though she’s stated in the past that she had the eating disorder in question before even meeting the man.
Well, it turns out she may not be the most credible source in the world, as she was once accused of being an accomplice to MURDER!
Well, I guess she’s just as crooked as Hillary Clinton, so her support of the candidate at least makes sense.
As BizPacReview reported:
Less than two years after winning the crown, Machado was accused of threatening to kill a Venezuela judge who charged her boyfriend, Juan Rafael Rodriguez Regetti, with attempted murder, according to The Associated Press.
The news agency reported in February 1998 that the judge claimed he was threatened after issuing an arrest warrant for Rodriguez.
A Venezuela judge said Thursday a former Miss Universe threatened to kill him after he indicted her boyfriend for attempted murder.
Venezuelan beauty queen Alicia Machado threatened “to ruin my career as a judge and … kill me,” Judge Maximiliano Fuenmayor said on national television. …
Rodriguez, 26, is accused of shooting and wounding his brother-in-law, Francisco Antonio Sbert Mousko, outside a church in Caracas last November where Sbert’s wife _ Rodriguez’s sister _ was being eulogizing.
Rodriguez apparently blamed Sbert for driving her to commit suicide.
Additionally, Machado’s former boyfriend’s family accused her of driving a getaway car after Rodriguez allegedly shot and wounded Mousko. Fuenmayor did not indict her, citing insufficient evidence.
I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt – but you have to admit that it’s suspicious. If Trump had named someone who had been mistreated by Hillary Clinton who had such a shady past, don’t you think the media would be hounding him over it non-stop? I believe the answer to that question is: yes, duh.
